Bollywood actress 'gassed and beaten up' in Paris
Bollywood star Mallika Sherawat has been attacked by masked intruders in her Paris apartment block.
The 40-year-old was tear-gassed and beaten up by three masked intruders last Friday, according to police.
The attack happened after Sherawat arrived back at her apartment on Friday with her French boyfriend Cyrille Auxenfans around 9.30 pm.
According to Le Parisien newspaper, the attackers wore scarves across on their faces and then sprayed the victims with tear gas before punching them and fleeing the scene.
Police have launched an investigation, with detectives suspecting the attack was an attempted robbery.
The incident took place a month after Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint and the apartment of Sherawat is near to the hotel in which Kim Kardashian West was robbed.
Sherawat is a big name in Bollywood, having starred in a string of big hits, and is also well-known for her modelling work.
